Revelation (Program #12) – Pergamos – Eating For Transformation

Revelation chapters two and three present us with seven epistles written to seven local churches. These letters are the record of the actual situation existing in these seven churches at the time the letters were written.  But since this is Revelation, a book of signs with a prophetic nature, the situations of the seven churches are also signs signifying prophetically the progress of the church in seven stages.  Today we come to the third of these seven letters, the church in Pergamos.

Exodus (Program #117) – The Priestly Garments (2)

Today we are going to bring you again one of our highlight programs from a previous life study and in our life study of Exodus, we are at a point of looking at the precious stones.   These messages are bringing us to the vision in Scripture of God’s building.  We had an outstanding message several months ago when we were in the life study of the book of Acts on this very thing, God’s building as seen in Scripture.  We feel it is a good time to go back and revisit that message.

As Christians we all know Christ as our Savior and our Lord.  We may also know Him as our friend even our healer and many other precious items.   Yet can we say that we, like Peter in Acts 4, know Christ as the stone for God’s building?

Revelation (Program #11) – Smyrna – the Resurrection Life and Crown of Life

Revelation, a book of prophecies, speaks of many events that have not yet taken place. But also, it speaks of many events that have since taken place. Even the past 2,000 years of church history were clearly foretold in the opening chapters of Revelation.

Exodus (Program #116) – The Priestly Garments (1)

Of all the major items presented to man in the Bible, perhaps none is as misunderstood and mysterious as the church.  Of course, to most people, the church is quite simple; it’s the building on the street corner.  Others though have seen more, that the church is not the physical building at all but is really composed of all the believers, the people of God.  But the revelation doesn’t stop here.  We are going to see a clear and wonderful picture of the church, God’s building.

Revelation (Program #10) – Ephesus – Love, Life and Light

No doubt, hundreds of volumes and countless thousands of pages have been written concerning the 2,000 years of church history since the Lord Jesus established the first church in Jerusalem. Church historians have had much to say as they have looked back through time. But do you realize that the Bible, in just two short chapters in the Book of Revelation, gives an incredibly comprehensive summary of the history, and did it before that history happened.

Exodus (Program #115) – The Lighting of the Lamps and the Garments for the Priesthood (2)

Exodus 27:20 speaks about the Holy Place within the tabernacle and calls that place, the Tent of Meeting.  To God’s Old Testament people it represented their corporate interaction with God.  Bible scholars have  long realized to us, the New Testament Christians, this sanctuary in the tabernacle is a picture of the gathering of the believers, the meetings of the church.  How to meet as seen by the activities in the Holy Place.

Revelation (Program #9) – The Son of Man In the Midst of the Churches

The Bible is a book of Christ.  If we have eyes to see, we can see Him not only in every book of the Bible, but really on every page of the Bible.  Revelation, the final book, shows us Christ in so many aspects that we dare not overlook anything if we desire to know Him as He is presented to us in His Holy Word.

Exodus (Program #114) – The Lighting of the Lamps and the Garments for the Priesthood (1)

The Bible is a marvelous book.  It truly is like no other book ever written.  But most of us have experienced from time-to-time that it can also be a mysterious book, not that easy to understand.  We may not see that much each time when we come to it.  Yet thankfully others have gone before us.   Through the generations, faithful men have given the keys that unlock this book of books.   Such ones in this century were Watchman Nee and his co-worker Witness Lee.  They not only received the keys, but they passed them on to us.

Revelation (Program #8) – The Seven Lampstands

It has been said of the Bible that the Old Testament is a book of pictures while the New Testament is a book of captions. But one book in the New Testament is also a book of pictures, and that is Revelation.  Most of the pictures in Revelation, it turns out, are found also in the Old Testament but the view in Revelation has been enlarged. One of these pictures, that is a key to understanding this book is that of the seven golden lampstands seen in chapter 1.

Exodus (Program #113) – The Court of the Tabernacle (4)

There is a powerful verse in the gospel of John that says when the Spirit of reality comes, He will convict the world concerning sin, righteousness and judgment.  Actually, every saved person has experienced this very thing.  In fact, without this experience we will never appreciate the need for our wonderful redeeming Christ.  But this same experience is described in the details of the gate of the tabernacle in Exodus.
